Rob Pirani, the Region Plan Association’s Director of Environmental Programs, presented at iLAND’s March symposium on plans for the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway, which is a 14-mile bike and pedestrian path along Brooklyn’s waterfront that is being planned and conceived by the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative.
Rob’s presentation (Powerpoint) illustrates the connections between design, creativity, and the utilization of public space. This map shows the proposed route for the greenway, which will run from Greenpoint to Sunset Park and connect four regional parks and numerous open spaces on Brooklyn’s waterfront.
Individuals can help build the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway by volunteering in a variety of ways. And you can visit the Greenway team this coming Saturday: On May 31st, JJ Byrne Park and the Old Stone House will host the 1st Brooklyn Bicycle Jumble, New York’s only outdoor bicycle flea market and celebration of New York City bike culture. Visit Brooklyn Greenway’s table at the Jumble, 10 AM to 2PM, at 336 3rd Street in Brooklyn.
